Cross Dressing for Jesus
David Lose, an ELCA professor at Luther Seminary in St. Paul, MN recently wrote an article/blog called “Cross Dressing for the Gospel.” Yes, you read that correctly.
Mr. Lose, in his article, writes an oh-so touching story of a cross dressing man named Stu, and how many of his neighbors decided to show their support for him by cross dressing. Mr. Lose writes that the people “stood in solidarity with Jesus by standing in solidarity with Stu, and unexpectedly gave witness to the love of God by cross-dressing for the gospel.” (see here)
This is what the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America has come to. They have succumbed to the evils of the world so much so that they have teachers of their pastors promoting “cross dressing.” How anyone can justify staying in the ELCA is beyond me. Mr. Lose isn’t a reclusive hobbit, living in his dark dungy office writing for publications no one reads. No, Mr. Lose writes and “speaks widely in the United States and abroad on preaching, Christian faith in a postmodern world, and biblical interpretation” (see here) sharing his stunning intellect with all who will listen.
It’s hard to believe that a seminary professor can claim that cross dressing is a godly thing to do. Maybe Mr. Lose’s next article will be “Doing Heroin for the Gospel” or “Aborting Babies for the Gospel.”

But...why should Matthew 25:31ff not be limited to what it says? Why can't it be expanded to include "If you cross-dressed in solidarity with a neighbor, you did it for me?!" In case there's any doubt, that was said sarcastically. Where does God ever suborn sin in His Word and say it is in His name or glorifies Him?

The "solidarity" theme reminded me of an anecdote related in Luther's "Table Talk":

I agree with both comments. I would only add that I like the word "Spiritual" -- meaning having to do with spirits, bad spirits -- as well as "Metaphysical."
